Stockton International Riverside Festival returns to Stockton High Street between Thursday 4 and Sunday 7 August for four, free unmissable days of street theatre, music, dance and outdoor arts.

The Festival will be jam-packed with world class shows – from the magical and quirky performances, to stunning visual experiences, daring dance and spectacular circus – there’s a whole host of free, fun and family friendly entertainment for everyone.

Experience the joy and thrill of our launch show, Gratte Ciel’s show TAWA.
As live music fills the air, aerialists and acrobats spin in a spectacular explosion of colour, with incredible acts of human strength and resilience.

The packed programme is now LIVE online here, so head over to the website to pick which acts you want to see during the four days of free circus, dance, music and outdoor arts.

Hard copies of the programme will also be available to collect from Stockton-on-Tees Libraries and other venues from 18 July and during the festival.

New to this year’s festival is SIRF Green which will tantalise tastebuds with a range of food outlets serving flavours to suit every taste, from gourmet brownies and flapjacks, to Korean food, vegan dishes, cocktails and alcohol-free mocktails.

As well as delicious street food, SIRF Green will be home to the Festival Village where you can relax and enjoy chill-out activities between shows, enjoy a picnic of your own and watch live music and entertainment on the Garden Stage throughout the weekend.
